Our friends at SCCF — the Sanibel Captiva Conservation Foundation — have established a nature-inspired book club!
Each month, The Green Readers choose an environmentally-based book that focuses on a different aspect related to SCCF and their conservation efforts.
Members can participate in one of several ways: simply read the book, join their Facebook group for ongoing online discussion, or join a virtual Zoom meeting to discuss the book at the end of the reading period.
You are welcome to participate in one, two, or all three of these options depending on your preference. To join the Facebook group, click here. (Please note that you’ll be asked a few easy questions when joining; they simply set up these questions to prevent spam posts in the group.)
Their newest selection? “Eye of the Albatross: Visions of Hope and Survival” by Carl Safina. Selected by SCCF’s Coastal Wildlife department and a winner of the John Burroughs Medal for Outstanding Natural History Writing, it follows the journeys of Laysan albatross Amelia as she travels thousands of miles from the sub-Arctic to the tropics.
Follow along with ongoing discussion on The Green Reader’s Facebook group. A Zoom discussion will be held on April 6 at 7 p.m. To join, register here!
